Abner was a brave general of the army of Israel, I am interested in spreading the good things of hard-working men and also taking responsibility for their mistakes, I make capsules and spread them, as part of an effort to remember and recognize the men and women of our history. I wouldn't call a dog Abner, I have great respect for all people.
